We are counting the days until we can get back to the classroom to continue our learning together, but until then please check the website weekly for assignments. Times are strange. Times are tough. Let’s continue to develop our skills and have some fun while we are at it.

All of you and your families are in our thoughts. We miss you. We REALLY miss each other. Let’s take some photos!

Creating a collection on your mobile device


Now that we are comfortable with DSLR cameras, Lightroom, and Photoshop let’s apply those skills to using our everyday cameraphones more professionally.  First, remember the basics:

  1. LIGHTING is what matters most
  2. COMPOSITION is at the heart of all great images
  3. EDIT to perfect not correct (go take it again if something is wrong)

We will be using Adobe Lightroom CC Mobile. Your first assignment is to install the the app (it’s free!) to your phone and edit FIVE new photographs.  Below are some helpful links and videos about using LR Mobile.


Golden Hour

In photography, the golden hour is the period of daytime shortly after sunrise or before sunset, during which daylight is redder and softer than when the Sun is higher in the sky. The period of time shortly before sunrise and shortly after sunset is called the “magic hour,” especially by cinematographers.
